So happy to see that some of you liked my find! Anytime you feel sad you should look at bouncing chickens :D

mikdog (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 9/28/2014 12:50

Oh my grief this chicken has way too much swag. (keke.)

Argyle (Level 6 Manager) @ 9/27/2014 15:04

Oh my god, agreed with you there, Mathias. Dancing chickens never made me laugh so much.

Mathias (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 9/26/2014 10:55

That keke tumblr is ridiculously entertaining. Wow. Thank you.

cure (Level 11 Godfather) @ 9/26/2014 07:43

Well, that's the idea.

Peyton (Level 6 Hitman) @ 9/25/2014 21:04

Moosebox is visually stunning, though the script for it is very modern Nickelodeon :p

aeveis (Level 5 Sniper) @ 9/25/2014 20:59

wow, very nice job on MooseBox!

caca (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 9/25/2014 01:14

The Pixel Digest blog is also very enlightening. Definitely worth the time reading.

Indubitably the best thing in this entire pot-pourri.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 9/24/2014 10:32

Squirrel sent in and it needed a link fix and I needed to post this before the whole world saw mikdog's video elsewhere.
